Rosemary and Thyme Oils

Staci Shands for

Okay. Making my own Lavender oil inspired me to make other oils from herbs I love to use.  I put Lavender Essential Oil in all of my homemade products and I also must use Rosemary and Thyme Essential Oils because they are great ingredients for the hair and skin!

After discovering the Lavender farm I searched really hard to find an exclusive Rosemary and/or Thyme farm someplace within the Albuquerque area but was unsuccessful. However, local farmers here grow the herbs, and then sell them exclusively at various farmers’ markets. So off I went to a farmers’ market super excited to buy fresh Rosemary and Thyme straight from the ground. But by the time I arrived they were sold out.

Then I remembered Rosemary and Thyme are also sold at the local supermarket. So off I went to the market and purchased three small plastic containers of fresh organic Rosemary and Thyme.

I plan to use the Rosemary and Thyme oils on my hair and skin as well as in my food! For the hair and skin, I will add several drops of Rosemary and Thyme Essential Oils in the proper bottles to enhance its use.

The recipes are so simple its ridiculous. Check out what I did below.

Step I: Rosemary

Step II: Thyme Leaves

Step III: I love to use glass bottles for everything. Glass maintains nutrients in recipes better than plastic. Organic Safflower or Sunflower Oil is wonderful to utilize. These oils are mild and won’t compete with the flavor of the herb. I am using Safflower Oil.

Step IV:  Thyme Stems After  Pulling Off Leaves

Step VI: Thyme in a bottle – get it – Jim Croce

Step V: Rosemary in a Bottle

Step VI: Marinating for two weeks or maybe more. I haven’t made up my mind yet.
